VMware Virtual 6.2: SAN Deploy and Manage

 
Duration 3 Days
 
OVERVIEW
 
In this three-day course, you will focus on deploying and managing a software-defined storage solution with VMware Virtual SAN™ 6.2. You will learn how Virtual SAN functions as an important component in the VMware software-defined data center. You will gain practical experience with Virtual SAN concepts through the completion of hands-on lab exercises.
 
Product Alignment
  • ESXi 6.0 update 2
  • vCenter Server 6.0 update 2
  • Virtual SAN 6.2
 
OBJECTIVES
By the end of the course, you should be able to meet the following objectives:
  • Describe the Virtual SAN architecture
  • Identify Virtual SAN features and use cases
  • Configure Virtual SAN networking components
  • Configure a Virtual SAN cluster
  • Deploy virtual machines on a Virtual SAN datastore
  • Configure virtual machine storage policies
  • Perform ongoing Virtual SAN management tasks
  • Outline the tasks for upgrading to Virtual SAN 6.2
  • Use the Virtual SAN health service to monitor health and performance
  • Monitor Virtual SAN with VMware ESXi™ commands and the Ruby vSphere Console
  • Configure a stretched cluster and observe failover scenarios
  • Describe Virtual SAN interoperability with VMware vSphere® and other products
  • Plan and design a Virtual SAN cluster
 
INTENDED AUDIENCE
Storage and virtual infrastructure administrators who want to use software-defined storage with Virtual SAN
 
PREREQUISITES
This course requires completion of one of the following prerequisites:
  • Storage administration experience on block or file storage devices
  • Understanding of concepts presented in the VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage [V6] course
Experience with working at the command line is helpful.
 
The course material presumes that a student can perform the following tasks with no assistance or guidance before enrolling in this course:
  • Use VMware vSphere® Web Client
  • Create and manage VMware vCenter Server® objects, such as data centers, clusters, hosts, and virtual machines
  • Create and modify a standard switch
  • Connect an ESXi host to NAS, iSCSI, or Fibre Channel storage
  • Create a VMware vSphere® VMFS datastore
  • Use a wizard or a template to create a virtual machine
  • Migrate a virtual machine with VMware vSphere® vMotion®
  • Migrate a virtual machine with VMware vSphere® Storage vMotion®
If you cannot complete all of these tasks, VMware recommends that you complete the VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage [V6] course before enrolling in VMware Virtual SAN: Deploy and Manage.
